Light-rail riders will be put on buses Thursday night through Monday morning as Metro Transit conducts maintenance operations in downtown Minneapolis.

Blue and Green Line trains will not run between U.S. Bank Station and Target Field from 6:45 p.m. Thursday through 3:30 a.m. Monday, Metro Transit said.

Blue Line trains will operate as normal between U.S. Bank Station and Mall of America and Green Line trains will run between U.S. Bank Stadium and Union Depot in St. Paul as normal during the shut down.

Buses will shuttle passengers between U.S. Bank Stadium and Target Field on a similar schedule as trains while the work is done, but Metro Transit warns that trips may take longer than usual.
